No trains next weekend from Carlton and Burton Joyce stations

Trains will be replaced with buses next weekend as planned engineering works takes place.

The work will see signals replaced at Fiskerton Station and Junction.

Coaches replacing trains calling from Carlton will leave from the 44 bus stop in Netherfield.

Those bound for Nottingham will depart on the hour for most of the time; those for Newark will use the 44 Netherfield bus stop for Gedling and leave around 2 minutes past the hour.

Trains will also be out of action on November 5 and 6 and will again be replaced by buses.

Our train correspondent Tony Cave said: “Posters for the timings of the buses will be posted on the Nottingham side of the platform the week before the works take place and are already available on the website.

“Coaches take much longer than the trains, so the 9am departure is a replacement for the 8.10am train to Nottingham; they are allowed 10 minutes from Netherfield to Station Street in Nottingham.”

He added: “You do not pay the driver and there are restrictions on what you can take, such as cycles and push chairs that do not: fold.

“Trains will run between Newark and Lincoln and from Nottingham to Derby.”
